Westmoreland State Park lies within Westmoreland County, from which it takes its name.

The park’s Horsehead Cliffs provide visitors with a spectacular view of the Potomac River. In addition to the scenic beauty at Westmoreland, the park offers hiking, camping, cabins, fishing, boating and swimming. Visitors can enjoy the park’s vacation cabins as well. The visitor center, open during summer, gives an informative historical and ecological perspective to an important natural area on the coastal plain. Westmoreland also offers the Murphy Hall Conference Center and the Potomac River Retreat, which is an upscale overnight accommodation.

  • Went to look at the space for a wedding venue. The park ranger, Jim, was so helpful. The building for events is accessible and ADA friendly. Views from the main lodges are beautiful. There are a ton of cabins. This is a great (and affordable) place for weddings, group stays and family reunions. We were so impressed.
  • Nice park, lots to do, tons of trails and stunning views. They have cabins and camping grounds, several picnic areas, a pool with a slide and diving board. I visited this park in February 2019 and they were working on the bathrooms by the pool but I do not know if it was a complete renovation or just minimal. I would definitely visit this park again during Summer time so I can enjoy all the park as to offer.
